Dymer is a narrative poem published by J. M. Dent in 1926 under the pseudonym Clive Hamilton (his actual first name followed by his mother's maiden name). Lewis worked on this poem, his most important poem, as early as 1916, when still only 17 years old, and completed it in 1925. It was Lewis's second published work. Two settings of the work currently exist, although the two settings are identical through page 40, where a forced return on the first line of Canto 4.12 in Setting 2 (the American Edition) causes paginations to diverge by a page thereafter.
